God called Craig Everett Singletary home on May 14, 2016, where he is now in the presence of his Savior.
Craig was born April 14, 1931, and raised in Portland, Oregon, to William and Rita Singletary and older brother, Bill.
He graduated from Grant High School, where he played the cello in the school symphony and the Portland Junior Symphony.
He attended Lewis & Clark College, majoring in speech communications. He received his master and doctorate degree from the University of Oregon.
Craig started his work career with KMCM, the local radio station in McMinnville, Oregon.
In 1958, he started his career with Linfield College, where he taught speech and communications for over 33 years.
While at Linfield, he created and chaired the Department of Communications and also established the first FM radio station on campus.
Craig was recognized as the "Voice of Linfield" for his 40 years of public announcing at the Linfield football games.
He was inducted into the Linfield Sports Hall of Fame in 2001, and the annual high school speech tournament hosted by Linfield is named in his honor.
Craig (known by "Doc" or "Jack") was respected and loved by many of his students.
While on choir tour at Lewis & Clark College, Craig met Nancy Brown, and they were married for more than 50 years.
They have four daughters, Carol, Diane, Linda and Marcia.
Upon retirement, Craig followed his passion for traveling and did video presentations of the places he visited all over the world. Winters were spent at Sky Valley, California.
Following the passing of Nancy, Craig was blessed to find love again with Fae, and they spent 8 1/2 wonderful years together.
Craig’s favorite words of wisdom were "keep your options open."
Craig was preceded in death by his parents; his first wife, Nancy; and brother, Bill.
Craig is survived by his wife, Fae; his daughters, Carol Smith, Diane Brown (Victor), Linda Potter (Kevin) and Marcia Satterwhite (Mark); Fae’s children, Mike Brown (Debbie), Jaci Kennington (Jim) and Bill Brown; 20 grandchildren; and 18 great-grandchildren.
